Hmm, I hadn't noticed that before, but it's fairly obvious once you
think about it (the source would be the thing being directly updated,
the packages wouldn't be updated by individual tweaks, they'd simply be
rebuilt from the newer source).  Just looking through some of the
notices, the message (further down) does list all the packages affected
by the update, directly.  Don could parse the whole update message.

Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.  Today, it's FC7.
